XANDAMERE’S SHOWDOWN SLANT ::
Thursday night has the Falcons visiting the Panthers in a 49 point total game with Carolina currently favored by a field goal. The big news is if Christian McCaffrey will return. He practiced on Monday but has not yet been designated to return from injured reserve. The beat news I’ve seen seems to think it’s possible but not likely that he plays, so I’m going to write this up as if he’s out and will adjust if we get news before Thursday.
The Panthers are one of the easiest teams to figure . . .
